The FirePower philosophy is to create the most realistic air combat experience possible. The veterans of the Second World War are leaving us at a rate of 1000+ a day. FirePower for Microsoft Combat Simulator 3, commemorates their skill and sacrifice by providing the player with an air combat experience like never before. This was accomplished by using authentic military test data and combat footage along with the input from over thirty real warbird pilots.
Virtual pilots will experience the air war of World War II while flying in one of 12 new aircraft in over 50 missions. The player will also experience revolutionary, explosive, special effects. Witness towering explosive blasts, aircraft being torn in half, and smoke drifting thousands of feet above the battlefields.
Under the hood, you will find every aircraft, building, and vehicle reacting precisely as they did in combat, when you unleash all of the newly designed weapons. Specific targets will require specific weapons, just like the real thing.
You will also get to fly the famous B-17 Flying Fortress, "Memphis Belle," man all of the gunner positions, and even attack bomber formations from the cockpit of some of Germany's most ingenious, flying machines.
Shrapnel will fly, tanks will blow, and guns will shred their targets to pieces. In fact FirePower is so real, you may find all you ever do is attack anything that has the misfortune of crossing your sights.
